Subjectc++ program reboots system.

I didn't save the address of the person who reported the reboot
This c++ code was reported to reboot a machine.

using namespace std;
int main(int argc, char** argv)
string raw_filename = "input.out";
ifstream raw_file(raw_filename.c_str());
vector<long> data;
return 0;

On Linux 2.4.18, the program just seg-faults (as it should).
On the version you are using, you should write a 'C' program
that does lseek() beyond EOF. There could be a bug there, but
otherwise I can't tell from the program presented.
